TULARE COUNTY, Calif. (KFSN) -- A cold case murder in Tulare County is heating up.
Tulare County sheriff's deputies have identified a suspect and person of interest in a murder that happened four years ago.
Back in April of 2018, deputies were called out to a house fire in the New London community.
After the flames were put out, investigators found 54-year-old Paul Abarca dead inside the home.
Detectives immediately launched a homicide investigation but no arrests have been made in the case.
Thursday, deputies identified 26-year-old Arturo Mascareno as the suspect in this murder.
Jonathan Martinez Lopez is a person of interest in the killing.
Both men left to Mexico after the murder, but investigators say there's a chance they have returned to the US.
The motive for this murder is not being shared by detectives at this time.
